9Electric Sign With Pavement Entertainment, Plan To Release New Album “Megalith” In Early 2019

9Electric have signed a new deal with Pavement Entertainment. The band are planning to release their new album, “Megalith,” through the label in early 2019.

Guitarist Mikey Lopez commented:

“We stripped our sound down and got back to basics, writing songs that stood out on their own and weren’t dependent on programming and production. This album is the most honest record of our career.”

“We had a great experience making our last record, but in hindsight I can’t help but feel like we stifled our producer by trying to have too much voice in how he did his job. We learned from that with Shawn [McGhee] – we let him produce, and he let us be us. And the results speak for themselves.”

Vocalist Ron Underwood added:

“The Megalith concept grew straight out of my obsession with lost civilizations and esoteric symbols. Most of the lyrics are introspections into life’s dualities – primarily good and evil, and how they work to create a third and even greater single entity beyond that given dimension.”

9Electric Premiere “The Damaged Ones” Music Video

9Electric have premiered a new video for the title track of their debut album “The Damaged Ones.” Check it out below:

Thunderwood told Loudwire the following:

“This is the title track from our album The Damaged Ones … a song that encapsulates a dark part of the human condition: eventually we all experience some kind of damage. I’d wanted to work with Marco De Molina (producer) and the Cordero brothers for a long time, and we wanted a big performance but also really liked this bizarre ‘yarn people’ concept… people have to shed their scars and baggage to see their true selves. We got something gritty and moody and I’m really stoked!”

9Electric Release New Mix Of “Destroy As You Go” Featuring Wayne Static

9Electric have released a new mix of their track “Destroy As You Go.” This song features a guest appearance from Wayne Static, who recently passed away. 9Electric have decided to remix the song and offer it as a free download, in honor of Static’s life.

The band issued the following statement:

“Today would have been Wayne Static’s 49th birthday.

For all the fans of Wayne Static who are mourning his untimely passing as we are, we offer the gift of the song “DESTROY AS YOU GO,” as a free download and YouTube stream.

We recorded the song in late 2010, before we had played our first show in 2011. Wayne was gracious enough to lend his voice to the track and he and his wife Tera even had a bit of a laugh at how reminiscent the song was to Static-X’s sound. It was such a fun day in the studio recording the song as the video below illustrates. In 2012, Wayne took us out on the road and even jumped on stage a few times to rock ‘DESTROY’ with us! Wayne believed in 9E from the very start and we will always be incredibly grateful for the opportunities that he gave our band.

Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers, as they are suffering during this time of mourning. We need to come together as a family to say happy birthday, thank you and goodbye to an icon and a kind man that we were lucky enough to call a friend.

RIP Wayne Static”
